Markets Ahead

It was a good day for U.S markets yesterday. The run was majorly boosted by better-than-expected results from the Bank of  America.

If you look deep, we can understand that there was a strong fight between bulls and bears today. There was a strong selling on every rise and vice versa.

But it is important to note that while Nifty started making lower highs, Bank Nifty was slowly moving up. Nifty also slightly broke a resistance trendline towards the end with strong buying volumes. We can expect Nifty to trade above 17,400 for one more day with good support in that region.

Even though Bank Nifty didn't see strong falls, it is struggling above 40,300. We can expect immediate resistance at 40,700.

FinNifty consolidated in a tight range after the initial profit booking. We can watch today’s daily high and low for tomorrow.

Reliance broke a double-bottom pattern today, which is expected to sustain. 

Who is going to win this expiry: the Bulls or the Bears?

How would our country be on a day Bank Nifty falls to 4000? I'm honestly terrified to even think of such an event! Share your answers in the comments section of the marketfeed app.
